There are FIVE pockets for hiding all your stuff. There are two lengths – mini to sit above the knee and midi to cover the knee. In addition, a back split can be added to both lengths. You can also choose to add a button opening at the hip.

Medium weight woven fabrics such as corduroy, denim or linen are perfect for this pattern.

Print the print-at-home pattern on A4/legal/letter sized paper.

Take the copy shop file to a professional printer to print onto large sheets of paper.

Use the projector file to project the pattern straight onto your fabric meaning you don’t have to print at all! 

The pattern is created in layers which allows you to simply print the layers (sizes) you need.
